A short Biography on Alquin:

A few students in Delft start a group in 1968. It is called Threshold Fear and they mainly play rhytmn and blues. In 1970 the band members are: Hein Mars (bass, vocals), Job Tarenskeen (vocal, sax, percussion), Ronald Ottenhof (sax, flute), Ferdinand Bakker (guitar, vocals, keyboards), Dick Franssen (keyboards) and Bart Terlaak (drums). A single is released on Negram: Sally Saddlepain/Thank me not, the track was produced by Peter Vink who later on would form Finch.

At the end of 1971 the group changes it's name to Alquin, named after the student society and rehearsal room Alcuin. They also change the drummer Terlaak goes and Paul Westrate comes. In 1972 they perform in Paradiso for the first time with the new name. Due to their growing reputation a record deal with Polydor is closed and they record their debut album Marks, produced by Hans van Oosterhout. The album is mainly a mix of rock, jazz and classical music. As a single You always can change is released with on the flip side the non album track Hard royce.

The popularity of the band is growing in 1973. The readers of  Oor magazine vote Alquin as the most innovative band. They also give a good performance at the Pinkpop festival in the Netherlands. In England the band has a performance on The Old Grey Whistle Test. A second album, The Mountain Queen is recorded, with the help of producer Don Lawrence. For fans of progressive rock, this is probably their best effort. In 1974 the band tours with The Golden Earring and The Who in England and Germany.

A real nice Bio on Odyssice, taken from the bands website:

Odyssice (a fantasy name associated with Greek mythology) was founded in 1986 by Bastiaan Peeters (guitar). The group had an enormous start when 'Track One' was played on the Dutch radio-show Countdown Café in 1987. That night the phone didn’t stopped ringing. Kees Baars, host of 'Countdown Café', said he had never seen such a reaction. The music of Odyssice is quite unique and can be described as dark clouds of string-ensembles and beautiful long guitar-solos. The guitar-solos add a vocal quality to this impressive instrumental music. All these ingredients make the music colorful and illustrative.

In the beginning

In 1988 'Losing Her' was the new track on the 'Exposure'-LP from the magazine 'Sym-Info', and according to 'Sym-Info's' office 'Losing Her' was one of the best songs on the album. The huge interest lad to an invitation to perform at a 'Sym-Info's' festival at ’t Noorderligt (now called 013) in Tilburg on June 16th 1989. The Noorderligt performance was a huge success. Requests for the live recordings of that show were enormous and it was sold out in no time.

The band was musically successful but musical differences caused them to disappear from spotlight for some time. Decided was to reincarnate Odyssice with new members. After a long period of try-outs, including singers. The band completed itself with the addition of keyboard-player Jeroen van der Wiel.

A short Bio by Melo, taken from the old forum:

With their debut CD "God Has Failed" in September 2000, RPWL was greeted on all sides with great enthusiasm. Praise and excellent reviews in all the important magazines. A hugely successful tour through half of Europe and appearances at many of the major festivals. In addition, RPWL has become an appreciated part of the Progressive/Symphonic rock scene. In 2000, some of the most important and influential Scene magazines graded the band on the world-wide popularity scale under the TOP 3!

In spring 2002, RPWL released their second album "Trying to Kiss The Sun". What began in 1997 as a PINK FLOYD cover band has in the meantime developed into an effective band in its own right. The music is still typically "RPWL" and without question, belongs to the symphonic rock scene. With a well-thought out collage of sound and tone, haunting melodies and poetic texts that get under the skin and are not easily forgotten, together with a Brit-pop rock mood - RPWL has made significant steps towards their own style of music with this second album. Whether enjoyed live or on CD, the songs sometimes sound a little raw but in that they have a very sensitive and personal tone, are not only a pleasure to listen to but at times can raise the hair on your head!

Backed-up by a unique Quadrophonic-System, every concert becomes a very special experience! There were numerous opportunities to experience RPWL live at stage: The Band went on tour through out Germany and half of Europe.
